I normally use a blow-off tube for the most vigorous part of the fermentation process. When it calms down I put a fermentation lock on, and, to tell you the truth, I sometimes have very little bubbling.

Foam on top of the beer is a good indicator of fermentation. Also, it should smell like beer when you sniff the top of the lock.
